Summit on the Game

Registration has closed for the 2019 TRU Summit.

The Texas Rugby Union is holding our fifth annual Regional Development Summit on August 23-25 in Allen, TX. We’ll be returning to the Courtyard Dallas Allen at the John Q. Hammons Center where we held our first ever Summit. We’ve also partnered with the Allen High School rugby team to use their fields for the practical sessions.

This year we’re offering multiple tracks in coaching, match officiating, medical, administration and strength & conditioning. We’ve also listened to your feedback and the 1-day courses will be offered on multiple days. This allows you to sign up for multiple events in one weekend!
